Doris was a devout Catholic, in fact she aspired to be a nun up until she met her husband for whom she was married to for over 50 years. Once married she settled into becoming a wonderful homemaker in Newport.

She was a friend to many and the person that everyone would turn to when they needed someone to pray for them. Once she put you on her prayer list she never took you off.
She loved sharing stories about God and miracles. It was important to her that she shared the gift of her faith with as many people as possible especially her two sons and grandchildren.

Doris had an infectious smile and once you met her you couldn’t help but love her. She was unforgettable and will be missed by many.
